in different places then. pat buchanan was then the ron paul of the republican party, running hopeless campaigns for president that won him a lot more votes than ron paul could ever dream of. >> tim, did we factor buchanan into this at all? if republicans abandon dole, do they revive the buchanan candidacy? perhaps tim is taking a coffee break. that's okay. do you think buchanan can go to the convention now and say i'm still here? >> buchanan is doing that. he's in the paper today says ross perot can take my voters. what he means by that is republican party better pay attention to me or my voters are going to go to ross perot. that's a strong argument at this point, and the republican party has to desperately figure out what to do with buchanan. >> pat is going to say wait a minute, if bob dole drops down in a throe-way race, what difference would a four-way race make? i don't think that will happen in the end. pat buchanan wants to be president of the united states, he's going to run in 2000, he doesn't want to antagonize people by being disloyal, but with bob dole perceived as a "wea

. has the big deal turned into a big fizzle, pat buchanan? >> it has not, john. did it for awhile but now it is back, and we're talking about something close to adds 4 trillion deal. the president is deep in negotiations with boehner and cantor, and here are the terms. you raise the debt ceiling, at the same time there are 3 trillion in cuts, and they deal with social security and medicare. there is no revenue enhancement. however, you get together some kind of commission which what it does, john, it drops tax rates in return for giving away these deductions, exemptions, allowances, breaks, which in effect is pure reaganism. there's one problem with that. there's a penalty if nothing is done by the end of 2012 the old reagan tax rates for the wealthy go back into effect. john, there's possibly a big deal for this reason. there is weeping and gnashing of teeth in the democratic caucus, in the senate, and in the house over what obama is dealing with boehner. >> boehner's got his problems, too. >> well, boehner -- i think cantor is in on this deal, it appears. of course, this is as o

about that. join meg is pat buchanan and bill press. pat, look at this, you defended the yacht makers the other day on the show. how do you run a party like this where you say we're for the big fat cat executives. that's the winning strategy? >> the winning strategy in this whole debt ceiling battle. the president can land el the republicans. you're in the pocket of the rich and wall street and all the rest of it. what will in july is this -- the republican nets house will say, we need a debt ceiling. that's responsible. we need to raise it. they will raise that, they will tape of to it all of the biden cuts from the senate. that have been agreed to. you're not going to have a single tax increase in there. they are going to send it over to the united states senate. and barack obama is going to sign it. what we saw yesterday on barack obama's part, all that frustration, you know, malia and sasha, they don't do all-nighters, the rest of it, that suggests to me that barack obama knows he is over a barrel right now. >> i don't see that at all. look, if what you say is true, pat, it is an

in chief of "the daily beast," tina brown. and in washington, nbc political analyst pat buchanan. let's start there. i must say grading both of these gentlemen, both of these leaders on performance, i would have given them an a. i thought both of them had compelling messages. i agreed with one more than the other. >> which one? >> i better not say, actually. but why did they do that last night? >> i think actually it should be jarring to the markets because no new ground was -- there were two political speeches. what was the purpose of it other than making all of america that was watching it just a little more nervous? >> it's a very good question. clearly boehner is responding to the president of the united states, frankly. and i thought boehner but very much above his game and the president is eloquent and it's better to have a superior podium. but why did the president do it? it was utterly unrealistic what he was saying. he's talking about, you know, the corporate jets and the taxes on the billionaires and all this. that is yesterday. there aren't going to be any tax increases. ha

. >> peter fann is the democratic strategic and pat buchanan is a former communications director for ronald reagan. they're my boys. it's been a while. you're all gal vanting about during the summer. here we go, pat. you heard the president ask that, why would boehner walk away from a deal worth more than $3 trillion? >> well, as boehner said and the republicans said and the the president said, the republicans were agreeing to $800 billion in revenues, and they believe what happened is the president on thursday night met with the democrats who went bananas over the cuts he was making, the added cuts in social spending, medicare, medicaid. the president moved the goalpost. but that's not the fundamental point. the point is we're at deadlock gridlock, and we can't get a big deal in ten days. i think what ought to happen is what is going to happen and we will find this out by next weekend is that the republicans in the house have to pass a temporary debt ceiling of, say, six months and put on it the easy cuts from the biden deal where everybody agreed. put those on it, pass those on to the sen

of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst pat buchanan. and bill press. congressman, let me start with you. what's your call on this? this is an extraordinary evening. >> it is and i think that you saw the president in a very effective way lay out what i had put on the table. so we know, we don't have to guess about it any more. we know exactly what was on the table in terms of spending cuts and revenue raising. and it seems obvious that speaker notwithstanding his best efforts, can't convince house republicans that for the sake of saving the country in our economy, this is the greatest nation in the world, the wealthiest station in the world, the notion that we are the world's dead beats should be beyond any of us. >> he actually quoted ronald reagan saying that a default would be below the dignity of the country. pat buchanan, you heard the president. it was an extraordinary statement. but he also laid out specifics of what was on the table. he said that the offer had been 1.2 trillion and discretionary funds, 650 billion. in entitlements. and they were working it in a way he felt was more tha

msnbc political analyst pat buchanan. good evening, gentlemen. >> good evening, reverend. >> let me start with you mr. buchanan, how do you feel that the president started today, said today, in his twitter town hall meeting that republicans should not but a gun to the head of the american people. >> i think it is the president of the united states who is engaged in an act of ex trorgs. what he is doing reveren is this. he is telling the republicans in the house, look, you can go ahead and pass the increase in the debt ceiling that we want and you can pass the budget spending cuts that senate democrats, republicans agree upon. but if you don't give me new taxes, i will veto it and put this country into default. that is an act extortion. >> what new tax mr. buchanan? >> what new tax, pat? >> are you going to let me respond or what? >> yeah, if you're going to respond. >> i'm going to respond. republicans believe in their heart and they have made a pledge and they don't know of economic philosophy where you raise taxes when the economy is flat on its back, al. >> how are you raising ta

to do what is right by the country. >> joining me now, are two msnbc political analysts, pat buchanan and richard wolfe. pat, let me start with you. >> all right. >> is your party playing games? >> our party's involved in these negotiations, al. and there's no doubt i think the president has been winning it politically on the national level. but i do think that the republican position, if cantor's position is this, we can't -- we're not going to give you any tax increases. we are going to give you an increase in the debt ceiling and we are going to put cuts on there, say a trillion dollars, and we are going to send it over for nine months. i think that can be a winning hand for the republicans. so let's say it is -- >> the republicans here, you say the republican hand like it is one hand. you have the boehner hand. you have the cantor hand. you have the tea party freshmen. you are acting like it is a united party. whether you have been watching or not be you have at least three hands you are playing at the same time. which hand are you referring to? >> well, on the one hand, everybody

eastwood should speak up for nixon. we hear nixon himself select pat buchanan, among others, for a special group with a special task. >> for the purpose not of cheering but solely of attacking and defending is of the highest priority. >> later in another memo david gergen sends along three possible short options for nixon's resignation letter. in another gergen says the president should say he's leaving with a heavy heart but without bitterness and ask the public to rally behind gerald ford, which he did. speaking of ford, there's a snarky letter from him complaining of being blacklisted by nixon who brought him on as vice president just over a week later. no hard feelings apparently. the memo showed diane sawyer, then a 25-year-old nixon white house aide, got in trouble for telling a family friend he was being nominated as a federal judge. problem is a u.s. senator was supposed to tell him first. sawyer apologized profusely. in 1969 george h.w. bush, then 45 years old, writes to a white house aide. when i grow up, i want to be president, i think. and then you can even see the end coming f

.v.d.'s of the reverend jeremiah wright's sermons. here's pat buchanan talking about the impact. >> obama has one problem. he's got one foot in radicalism, the folks in west virginia, they knew one thing about barack obama, jeremiah wright was his pastor and he lost 20 points. >> any right-wing opponent of barack obama could play that as a news program. >> and it's going on the web as well, youtube. you may have it played 200 times on television. it's being played a million times on youtube and the internet. people are going to it partly out of entertainment. partly to reinforce their own political views. but it's become sort of news. chris: especially when you have news networks who have points of view. they can say, it's just news, let's look at it again. >> and they're never put in context. it goes up on youtube, nobody says what the context was, and it goes viral. so there's never a frame around it saying, this is how this happened. this is the background in which it happened, this is background of the record. all of that is out. >> look at what barack obama did with reverend wright. you can't wait f

that occurred with pat buchanan at the university of western michigan. it wasn't pie to be fair, it was salad dressing. but you get the idea here. last night by the way on "the daily show," jon stewart giving us his own take. take a look. >> the whole day of testimony was amazing. but perhaps no moment more remarkable than murdoch interrupting his son's opening statement. >> of the newspaper -- >> before you get to that, i'd just like to say one sentence. this is the most humble day of my life. >> not so humble you couldn't wait for your turn to talk. by the way, that was before some idiot tried to pie murdoch. the young woman in pink whose lightning reflex and devastating chuck norrisesque hand speed subdues him. that woman is rupert murdoch's wife, wendy. now, i'm not a big proponent of the four decade marriage age gap. but if ever there was a situation where it would pay dividends, it would be an ambush like that. of course the attack occurred after a period of the testimony where murdoch may have appeared somewhat vulnerable. asleep. what? what happened? >>> still ahead, why are you awake

, are these statistics a bigger worry than the debt ceiling prevailing argument? pat buchanan? >> they're equally big worries, john. despite the fact the president had an $800 billion stimulus fed is triple the money supply, three deficits of almost $5 trillion, the economy is dead in the water this. that argues for a stimulus of a reaganite stimulus or obama stimulus, but there's who more tools in the toolbox here. on the other side you have the debt deficit problem, which $10 trillion in deficits, which argues for austerity. spending cuts, taxations, so you've got two in total conflict. the president inherited aaron economy, john, that i think the only way this thing will go forward is through the old stagflation of the post-nixon era. >> eleanor? >> they've got to raise the debt ceiling even if it takes the president invoking the 14th amendment of the constitution and doing it under his own authority. they've got to do that because the consequences of that, the numbers you just put up on the screen, would look rosie compared to what the economy would look like if we defaults. we take the world's g

, why has the debt ceiling caused a political impasse? pat buchanan. >> the democrats don't want to give up on their entitlement program and takes cuts and things like medicare. secondly and more important, republicans aren't going to give them a dime in tax hikes, john. but i'll tell how will win this. boehner has nor confidence, you see the president talk income panic. what the republicans will do is wait until about july 20th, and then take the biden cuts, all the biden cuts in social programs, tie them to the debt ceiling, and pass them in the house and send them to the senate, so you've got your debt ceiling raised for one year, with the biden cuts. i think the democrats, the president of the united states, will have to sign that. the republicans have an enormous weapon here and they've got the whip hand by just sending over these debt ceiling increases with cuts on them, again and again and again. that's how it will play out. >> are you saying the senate will be become part of the annual budget? >> i think the debt ceiling battle could -- that cook a six- month thing or one year th

with political fire. msnbc analyst pat buchanan joins us now. good afternoon. >> good afternoon. >> the evidence we're hearing point to an increasingly contentious relationship between speaker boehner and his number two eric cantor. aren't they supposed to be working alongside each other, and if not, which one do you believe is in charge of these negotiations? >> i think speaker boehner was down at the white house, and i thinky entertained a temptation for the so-called big deal, martin, the $4 trillion deal and getting rid of certain exemptions, deductions, et cetera, but i think he came back to the house caucus and realized this represents an increase in taxes, an increase in revenue and that the republican caucus in all those 63 new moments who were voted, they have given their word to the american people we're not going to do this. we don't believe in that and it goes against our principles so i think he's back on the proper page. >> so pat, who is the president supposed to be negotiating with? is it speaker boehner and his proposed plan for 4 trillion in cuts, revenue raising and eric canto
